Maybe it lost something in the translation... Bored me out of my skull.

Absolutely loved the first half; found the second half inexplicably difficult, despite the topics being arguably more interesting.

Review by

Great account of the development of the cradle of civilization. Entirely readable for the layman, yet still academically meaty enough to satisfy the student or scholar. Despite being somewhat out of date, it is still a worthwhile addition to anyone's ancient history library.
